So at CES maybe? What isn't at CES these days
I really hope this just blows the rest of the competition out of the water. Judging by how good the first one looked i think this could really be the best looking car in the segment aswell. Im rooting for polestar.
Or Detroit which is in a couple weeks.
The EV market is starting to look good.
I wouldn't be surprised if this reaches markets outside the US (let alone right hand drive territories) before the Tesla Model 3.
If any new EV brand can achieve, or even exceed, the same level of Brand equity as Tesla, I reckon Polestar has the best shot.
Volvo wasn't at the show last year, at least not officially. Also, looking at the press conference schedule neither Volvo or Polestar have anything scheduled at this time.
The Detroit auto show is pretty much irrelevant now. The venue is too small and the area around Cobo Hall is really terrible. Plus no one wants to go to Detroit in January. Thankfully for 2020, the show is moving to the summer months, but that's too little too late.
If it doesn't drop at CES, I'm guessing it'll end up at Geneva in March.
I'm very excited for this, Volvo have really been knocking it out of the park with their designs recently and the Polestar 1 is a fantastic looking car. Hopefully one day I can actually afford one...
Too late for that, the Model 3 is already here in Europe. They've just opened sign-ups in December, and the first few are arriving March-April.
Is this the Polestar 2?
Could be, where did those images come from?
That's the Volvo Concept 40.2, it could be the Polestar 2 the Polestar 1 was a Volvo concept.
Fun Fact: The Polestar 2 is said to be heavily influenced by the 40.2 concept, which was unveiled alongside the 40.1 concept which later turned into the XC40:
Seeing how close the XC40 is to the 40.1, you get an idea of how close the Polestar 2 will be to the 40.2.
They're going to sell a car at the Model 3's price made of carbon fiber?
I'll believe it when I see it.
Chinese made right.
its possible, but yahh your right.
BMW I3 is largely made of CF and it's about the price of the Model 3.
It also doesn't compare favorably to the Model 3 in any way, especially in performance. In that regard it's more like a Nissan Leaf. It does have a very nice and unique interior though.
It is also largely made of CF and it's about the price of the Model 3.
Price of the new i3 base model: €40,650
Price of the new Model 3 base model: €58,800
So definitely not about the same price.
In the US:
I3 starts at $44,000
M3 starts at $46,000*
*there are cheaper options technically on Tesla's website, but I'm not sure you can actually get one at this point.
Ya, there's a "$35,000" one that's really $44,000 because Tesla factors in estimated gas savings for six years and the federal tax credit. It's really a bunch of BS. Tesla promised a $35k Model 3 and it never delivered on it.
The Polestar 1 looks very good. I hope the Polestar 2 will look good as well.
The Polestar 2 will be revealed online today, at 13:00 CET.
I wasn't won over by the Polestar 1 but I like this a lot, the crossover-style cladding is really doing it for me.
I wish manufacturers would stop putting most of the controls on a touch screen. It's not futuristic or clever, it's bloody annoying.
Mjölnir headlights are the best headlights.
